Ames, M.P., had held his magic lantern show iu IVwl Beer ill. of towiL a_Lib-l erftl "absolutely fair in its me- thods and never-guilty of working up Gctiticur yarns, published the follow- ing .interviews, which go to prove Mr. Ames is for from an authority on subjects eu.deu.vor- ing to enlighten the people of West- ern Canada upon, and also that he is palpably- unfair iu his statements .misrepresents without any hes- itancy: "I believe Mr. Ames showed up some of you fellows in a pretty bad light on Monday the Advo- cate observed to a man who knows something of the lumber business. "Well, if Ames-hadn't any better light for 'Western people than he gave us here, he had much, better stay at home. Why the man appear- to me to be'. deliberately out to deceive. You remember where he said that the "Government had parted with the timber lauds before they had any idea as to their uow that they arc gone had cause to regret its negligence.. the deliberate inference is that having received the sbonus oa these limits nothing further is ever received in the shape of revenue by the people of this country- Whereas, as every lumberman, well knows, the bonus is a mere bagatelle, being ac- tually in the nature of a small de- posit. "Let us see what the government will receive from the two limits 3JLr. Ames accuses the government of hav- ing given away for a meres song, viz. the famous Cedar JLake limit, and the Prince Albert, limit. The Cedar Lake limit is comprised of 100 miles and is estimated at feet, Mr. Ames said. That is log measure or about feet of lumber. The govern- ment will therefore receive as dues the sum of in addition to a yearly, rent of This is what Mr. Ames calls giving the timber away. "The, Prince Albert limit of 500 square miles will not cut ft. to the square mile, as Mr. Ames estimated, about a fourth of this feet long measure, or feet of lumber on a -very conservative estimate, The go- vernment will therefore "receive in dues in addition to a year- ly rent of "It must be understood, however, that the above figures do not begin to represent what the country will actually receive from the Al- bert limit, as such a large limit can- not possibly be exhausted by any lumbering operations, and even if burnt over will renew itself. Xow it is ,quite likely that with increase pop illation, a company operating such a large limit, might cut 50 million feet, per annum. This at 50c. per thou- sand feet means an annual payment to the government ol so that with the ground rent of S2500, the people of this country from this limit alone will receive a perpetual annuity of to say nothing of interest. "This is what Mr. Ames rails giv- ing our timber away. And I'm in- clined "to think that Burrows tender- ed for 26 limits instead of 19, and I got eighteen of them. But I haven't j the by me." And the Advocate informant, who was quite warmed up over what he considered the deliberate unfairness of Mr. Ames whole argument, wunt .on his way. "Oh I heard most of his ad- dress" said a third, man. "He did not say anything about the annual rrrnl and siurnpagc dues the lumbermen have to ray annually and such omission is to give a wrong idea of what tho lumbermen arc up against in handling a limit. There is no way to insure limber against fire, as you can insure other property, and your whole investment, j may be wiped out in a few hours, ns happened to some of 1he comnui- ies in the Crow's Xest P..SS fire. "There nfay be something in the getting of some of these lim could not tell as to that- even though they wore all given to the highest tender but the govern- ment got fairly substantial bonuses as a rule. There are many fluctua- tions in the value of timber limits; I know some people who would be gind to get out today for a reason- able return for their, investment. Of course I suppose every one knows that the land returns to the Govern- ment when the t.imber is cut off it. It would not be worth anything just now but you can never tell what some of it will be worth some day." The Advocate man ran across an- tor tuadafg.

SOMEWHAT LATER carrying oue tion is false. No Provincial Government has er or authority to deport any. person from Canada. Sucli power is vested in the Minister of the Interior alone, and. even he is only empowered to tawa. act upon notification and particulars received from the clerk or-secretary, of ..the municipality in which the per- son to be deported is resident. This power is conferred by section 33 of the Immigration Act, the first two sub-sections of which read as fol- 33, Whenever in Canada an within two years of his landing in Canada, become a publi.c charge, or an inmate of a penitentiary, jail, prison or hos- pital or other charitable institu- tion, it shall be the duty of the clerk or secretary of the municipal- ity to forthwith notify the minis- ter, giving full particulars. 2. On receipt of such informa- tion the minister may. in his dis- cretion, after investigating the facts, order the deportation of such immigrant if he is ablo to pay, and if not, then at the cost of the municipality wherein lie has last boen regularly resident, if so ordered by the minister, and if he is a vagrant or tnynp, or there is no such municipality, tin n i at the cost of the Department of the Department of the Interior. The establislunent of provincial bureaus of immigration is compara- tively a new thing, and the scope of their authority is very narrow. It would seem that some of tho officials connected with them feel that a noisy activity on their part is re- came, by the immigration branch.
